One of the Elmhurst College Jazz Festival’s distinctive commemorative traditions is to commission an artist each year to design an album/CD cover. This year, as the College celebrates the 50th anniversary of its renowned Jazz Festival, the Elmhurst Art Museum will exhibit this collection of work plus the Festival’s large-scale performance banners, which depict such jazz greats as Thelonious Monk, Art Blakey and Dizzy Gillespie. The exhibition will be accompanied by a jazz soundscape featuring highlights from the Festival.
